25 November

I used to say that I loved Christmas.

And I still do.

But what I've come to realize is that what I really love is

the season of Advent.

I am so thankful for my loved ones -my daughters, Joe, my family and friends...

I'm thankful for my job, which I have so much fun at.

I'm thankful for my grandson who owns my heart.

Joe and I met in town on Tuesday night.

We walked through Faneuil Hall
we saw the tree all lit up for the season

and walked around with hot coffee in the cold twinkly night.

After work I walked around Quincy Market in Faneuil Hall

to make some pictures.

I have to admit that Thanksgiving isn't my favorite holiday.

It's sort of like a rest stop on the highway to Christmas..

When I was a girl we would often stop at a pretty rest stop

and have a little picnic and then be back on our way to the final destination...

Thanksgiving morning I was up early baking the pumpkin pies

everyone loves them so I made two to bring to my mum's house.

I am going to make another one this morning

so we can have some at home as well.

We picked the boys up on Wednesday afternoon and will have them with us till Sunday.

We didn't get to see them much in November so it's been wonderful having them!

They love playing with Tuck Finn!

Verne and his parents spent Thanksgiving with his father's family.

I am going to see him today and I can't wait.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
